How quickly the mighty fall!

Yesterday i was so gung ho. I was proud of myself because even though I succumbed to the cake batter, I adjusted the planned food intake for the rest of the day and all was good. I was on a high of pride. But then it all crumbled around me. How?? Well, of course in the evening when I made a fudge icing for the cupcakes! Icing tastes so good ya know! Sooo I had chocolate fudge icing.....washed down with a cold glass of milk. Nope, not counted at all in my food budget! So the scales were up .6 of a pound. Expected! I've owned up to my eating catastrophe and I'm moving on!

The cupcakes. I saved two mini cupcakes for each of us for dessert tonight and the rest have been brought to work. Some are on a cake plate to eat today...and the others are in Ziploc bags to put in the freezer at they can eat them here over the next few weeks. I'll be fine with that.....I'm not overly tempted here. (Closet eater am I)I do plan on eating pizza with the group for lunch...but I have accounted for it and it is planned into my food budget!

It just goes to show how quickly things get out of hand. I wrote yesterday afternoon about the pride high and how I want to remember that....but mere hours later I was in a chocolate daze after shovelling the leftover icing into my mouth! There is NO excuse for it...but I think what happens is that I take a taste without thinking. Sub-consciously...testing it. And once the taste is in my mouth, I can't stop!

No fears...I'll lick this addiction if it's the last thing I do. Ohhh no....wait, I don't want to LICK about I beat it! tee hee hee

Hey, you're so good about getting back on track, I know you'll do just fine. I'm even trying to follow your example. Goof, and get back!! I'm getting better at it, but still need a little tweeking. Just like Arnold kinda said, "You'll be baaaahk".

At least you get back on track. That is an accomplishment in itself. Just space your goofs far apart. That's what I tell myself. hehe

Frosting is my favorite thing, too. Cake is just a conveyor for the best part!

I don't know if we ever beat the addiction, but the key to being successful is to be able to stop and get back on track right away rather than letting thing slide.

You are doing great!

Oh, wow, what memories. I love chocolate icing with a big glass of ice cold milk. And not the skim kind either.

I wonder if we'll ever beat this addiction. I don't think I ever will. I think I'll just have to figure out how to have that wonderful stuff once in a while without going overboard. Nah, that'll never happen either. Now I'm perturbed at myslef for being such a whimp when it comes to food.
